'Unreal', 'Our best player again' – Newcastle fans rave about defender after display v Crystal Palace

Newcastle secured a battling point against Crystal Palace on Sunday and fans hailed defender Paul Dummett for helping his side hold on in a nervy second half.
Newcastle took the lead in the first half when Mohamed Diame poked home a Kenedy corner.
However, the tide turned in the second half and Crystal Palace equalised in the 55th minute through a Luka Milivojevic penalty that keeper Karl Darlow almost saved.
From that point on it was backs against the wall for Newcastle but despite a couple of late scares, Crystal Palace couldn’t find the goal that would net them the three points.
Newcastle fans didn’t have a lot to cheer but they recognised a solid performance from their 26-year-old left-back Paul Dummett.
He’s only made eight appearances in the Premier League this campaign after a hamstring injury kept him out of the first half of the season.
But he put in one of the best performances in a Newcastle shirt on Sunday and fans were quick to praise him on Twitter.
Here are the best reactions from newcastle fans:
